Home-Start's new grant to expand support in Wiltshire for military families

Written by Tony Millett on .

The Armed Services Covenant Fund has awarded Home-Start Kennet and Home-Start South Wiltshire a grant of £90,000 for their project 'Serving Families'.  This will enable the two charities to provide support for 25 serving military families each year for three years.

Home-Start has been supporting families in Wiltshire for 30 years.  Volunteers, who all have parenting experience, are professionally trained and supported to help families under stress that have at least one child under five.

This new funding will enable the two charities to recruit and train more volunteers.  Anyone who thinks they might benefit from Home-Start's unique and totally confidential support or who might become a volunteer can email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
